Update for Motorola DROID Pro being sent out in phases
posted by Alan F. / Apr 23, 2011, 10:38 AM
Among the changes that the update (to Version 3.8.7.XT610.Verizon.en.) brings is encryption of data that is stored on a microSDcard. Other changes will be found on the calendar and in the email application. And while not the most earth shattering piece of news, the update will allow the VCast app store to become pre-loaded on the device.
Additionally, the new software upgrade will be like a can of Raid-it will kill bugs dead. The on-screen clock will now keep the correct time (always important for a business device), text messages will no longer display the incorrect recipient and the calendar will no longer delete events if updated.
All in all, while not an upgrade to Android 2.3, your Motorola DROID Pro should run a little better with the removal of those bugs and some others, and you might sleep a little better at night knowing that the contents of your microSD card are encrypted.

Mine took about an hour to download. Another 10 minutes to install. After everything was said and done it tld me that the update failed. When going to check for updates manually it says my phone is up to date. I am so done with this phone. I have had the chance to play with the Samsung Charge, Incredible 2 and the Motorola "Targa". The Targa is absolutely the most stellar phone I could ever imagine having in the next 5 years.

My Pro "successfully" updated. It's in quotes because now the phone will refuse to display text messages even after it's indicated that I've received a new one...it says Message is Unavailable. However, it doesn't do this for everyone...it only does it on occasion but it does happen multiple times a day. I went through the awful factory reset restoration process to no avail. Verizon is shipping me a replacement phone but I have low confidence that it will resolve the issue. Very frustrating because otherwise I really like this phone.
